So, now it's June 25. Has anyone had the fine fortune of seeing Michael Moore's latest bombastic partisan "documentary"?

If I had to pick a political affiliation, it would be Republican, but I can't wait to see this film. However, here in Podunkville, Missouri, USA, there's not a theater for miles showing it.

So, has anybody seen it? Any comments?

the film is just like a disney documetary injected with some humor, except its about international policy and war and death instead of ground hogs or beaverdamms.

It is worth seeing for the footage. and is not really propaganda.
I picked up 6 tickets on monday when they went on sale.
Sold out on the same day.
Most notable was...
Amazing mix of people.
Cops showed up as second show let out to contain the people back onto the sidewalks.

Genral mayhim and festive atmosphere everywhere.

indepentdant theaters in america get their payday.

With a coffee shop near by and the crowed growing, I expected a lasting partyzone late into the night but went home.

Its worth seeing.

Cashel, I'm only one person. I plan on it, as I plan on eventually viewing and perhaps reviewing some Machinima films, but right now I'm working my way through the HUGE number of early Edison recordings just made available over in Open Source Audio. They're some great music, despite, and perhaps because of, how old they are.

I have been a long time fan of the Edison recording and films and have downloaded numerous items from the Library of Congress Edison site. Enjoy )I have seen most of the films but I have LONG way to go before I discover all the recordings)

Yeah, loc.gov is also a great site for the films. Perhaps Archive should mirror them. But that's a job for another day.

F 911 is a propaganda film. If you are Pro Bush you will hate it because of the facts disclosed which make your candidate look bad. If you are anti Bush you will like it because of the facts disclosed which make the opposing candidate look bad. If you haven't been paying attention for the last four years, you will be shocked.

agreed BUT we can read the reviews and other information on the Moore film, view the bbc film and get some interesting opinions. We may need to revise our opinions when the moore moview is shown in the USA. HEY, the film has been shown in France...

This message is for Mac users only:
I'd really love to watch this film, but it seems unviewable on a Mac. I've tried every program known to man, I have every codec there is, I've tried converting it with ffmpeg, and no luck.
Can anyone prove me wrong? Has anyone watched this on a Mac? Please let me know what you did. Basic advice like "get the latest Quicktime Player" not necessary...
Thanks in advance!
p.s. "Get a PC" would also be unhelpful...

I don't think AVI is a universal cross-platform file format. It seems that it's a proprietary, Windows-only format. QuickTime Pro doesn't recognize it. I tried importing it into iMovie and it wouldn't parse. Final Cut Pro 4 completely ignored it. Even WindowsMediaPlayer for the Mac shuns the AVI file.

Poor little AVI file, now I'm starting to feel sorry for it!

.avi is to Windows as .mov is to Mac. It is true, .avi is an P.O.S. codec. All except for a Divx AVI which has good quality to file size ratio. A lot of times you find AVIs that are corrupt. Either you can see the video and not hear the audio or vice versa. That or they don't work at all. Forget about using them in any editing program...ain't gonna happen. If you would like to view them as they were intended under Mac OSX. Do yourself a favor a get VLC. Video LAN Client, an amazing piece of software that can take anything you throw at it, has a good fullscreen mode as well as audio normalization. Get it for free at ...................... http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ If the .avi won't work in this...... IT WON"T WORK! Good luck and happy viewing.

Thanks for the link to Video LAN Client, it truly is an amazing piece of software! It opened and played the video portion of this movie perfectly on my PowerBook. (No audio, but when I went to various other sites and found the same movie posted, no audio there either in WMP: "unsupported codec.") I'm guessing that this is kind of a sloppy file, since I had no problems seeing AND hearing other AVI files that I've collected using VLC.

Thank you again nLite10, for a brilliant little software program!

I think you can also convert avi to a more common format like mov

An AVI is a 'container' not a codec. The video and audio parts within it can be compressed using many different codecs. For example you could compress the video using MJPEG and the audio using MP3. If you don't have the necessary codecs installed on your system, you may get sound/no video, video/no sound or nothing at all.

I work with AVIs all the time (on the PC) for editing. They work perfectly. If an AVI doesn't work, it means you don't have the necessary codecs installed, the download didn't complete or the AVI wasn't encoded properly.

Of course AVIs work perfectly on a PC. It is it's native video format. We were refering to viewing AVIs on a Mac. Not raw AVIs, because raw AVIs are easily swappable to a Mac from a PC. There are all kinds of problems inherent to AVI files that are compressed using a lossy codec. Forget about WMA, WMV or ASF files... they're crap. An AVI's Quality is inferior to that of Quicktime MOV files. A Divx AVI is pretty good though. You can use Discreet Cleaner to transcode an AVI to a MOV using any codec you have installed. Even PC users should make a habit of using Quicktime.
